There’s nothing more American than protesting. We’re a country of rabble rousers who change the world by fighting for our beliefs. With that in mind, GoTopless has been on a crusade for clothing equality between men and women — centered around what we’re allowed to show and forced to conceal in public. Through generations of gender equality struggle there have been leaps forward and disappointing setbacks, and America tends to be particularly puritanical when it comes to bare skin being linked with sexuality.

Back in 1936 ,men fought for the right to go shirtless in public. There were protests by male lifeguards and movie stars so that navels, nipples, and chests would be allowed out and about in public. Eighty years later, women still have to protest and risk being arrested for going shirtless in public spaces.
